FREE SHIPPING NOW! Our Douglas Fir, ‘Quick-Lock’ T&G Shiplap, Wood Ceiling & Wall Planks give you the popular 1/8 inch “Nickel-Gap” reveal of traditional shiplap paneling with the added benefits of an Interlocking Tongue & Groove profile.
Unlike traditional shiplap planks that simply overlap one another and must be face nailed when installed, the end-matched, ‘Quick-Lock’ Tongue and Groove (T&G) profile interlocks on ALL 4 edges (2 long sides + 2 short ends) eliminating the need for end-joint seams to be placed on a ceiling joist or wall stud. The resulting benefit is a Quick & Easy, Tight-Fitting, Low-Waste installation that can be Blind Nailed to conceal all fasteners.
Milled from premium-grade, Solid Douglas Fir to meet our 99% usable specifications, each plank is then factory finished with with a stain color and/or a hard, satin sheen top coat and UV cured for a super smooth surface with extreme durability (unless ordered Unfinished or Primed).
What is Douglas Fir?
Many people tend to confuse Pine and Douglas Fir or think that there is no real difference between these two popular wood species. This is understandable because both are softwoods harvested in the northern hemisphere and are used extensively in the building trades for lumber, plywood, flooring and other woodworking projects.
While both species have their merits and are excellent choices for a variety of projects, there are some differences you should be aware of when considering which one you may want to purchase for your home:
1. Grain & Stability
Wood grain is an excellent indicator of overall stability. The closer together grain lines are, the more strength and stability there is to the wood. Pine tends to have broad grain lines that wander, and if not properly prepared and dried (like all of our Pine Planks are) the soft wood between those grain lines may expand and contract, causing cupping and twisting. Douglas Fir on the other hand, features a tight, flowing grain pattern that is naturally more resistant to warping and twisting.
Pine’s grain structure varies in colors ranging from brown to yellow-white while Douglas Fir has a uniform dull-yellow color. Douglas Fir grain features a beautiful flowing effect that is absolutely stunning and because of its incredibly uniform appearance, it readily accepts a wide variety of finishes with great consistency.

CAN CEILING & WALL PLANKS BE INSTALLED DIRECTLY TO THE FRAMING JOISTS, TRUSSES OR STUDS?
Yes. There is no issue in doing so, however consult with your local building department, as drywall may be a code requirement in certain circumstances.
CAN CEILING & WALL PLANKS BE MADE FIRE-RATED?
Only our Faux Wood Ceiling & Wall Planks are available with a Fire-Rated option to meet any fire-code requirements your project may have.
CAN CEILING & WALL PLANKS BE USED / INSTALLED OUTSIDE?
Yes. Ceiling & Wall Planks (including MDF*) can be used in “dry” exterior applications (i.e. no direct contact with wet weather like rain or snow). For example on a porch ceiling where they will be exposed to temperature and humidity changes, but never get wet.
If you need planks that can withstand direct contact with wet weather see our Waterproof Barnwood Planks which carry a 10 year warranty.
*We recommend that the MDF Planks be sealed on the back (if not already factory primed on back) and painted with an exterior-grade paint on the front when used in these types of applications.

Yes. We offer a variety of faux wood beam Sample Kit options HERE
*The cost of the Sample Kit you purchase will be credited towards your faux wood beam order.

CAN TILTON INSTALL THE CEILING & WALL PLANKS FOR ME?
Due to our commitment to manufacturing and providing our customers with the best products possible, Tilton Coffered Ceilings, Inc. does not provide any installation services. However, all of our products have been designed with the ease of installation in mind and so they may be installed by both DIYers and professionals alike.
DO YOU OFFER MATCHING MOLDINGS OR TRIM FOR THE CEILING & WALL PLANKS?
No. However, complimenting trim can be made by cutting the Ceiling & Wall Planks into the required widths and lengths needed. Otherwise, we recommend using moldings and trim of a contrasting color and/or finish (i.e. moldings or trim painted white).
DOES TILTON OFFER TOUCH-UP KITS FOR THEIR CEILING & WALL PLANKS?
No. Due to the proprietary color formulation and application process, providing touch-up stain or paint is not possible. Consult with a paint professional at your local retailer to have a custom stain or paint color mixed to suits your needs.
HOW DO I MEASURE FOR CEILING & WALL PLANKS?
The easiest way to measure for Ceiling & Wall Planks is by using the square foot method. To calculate the square footage simply measure the length of your ceiling or wall and multiply it by the width. Add up all the walls and/or ceilings you would like to cover and deduct for any window or door openings to determine the exact square footage. Then add 15% to allow for waste.
HOW MUCH DO CEILING & WALL PLANKS WEIGH?
The Ceiling & Wall Planks weigh in at just 1 – 1.25 pounds per linear foot, which translates to about 8-10 pounds per 8ft plank and 16-20 pounds per 16ft plank.
IS THERE A MINIMUM ORDER REQUIREMENT FOR CEILING & WALL PLANKS?
Yes. Most Ceiling & Wall Planks have a 200 square foot Minimum Order Requirement (MOQ) while the Waterproof Barnwood Planks have a 1000 square foot MOQ and the Cedar Planks all have a 400 square foot MOQ. However, you may mix and match plank sizes and/or colors of the same type to meet the minimum.
Check the product page to verify the MOQ for the type of plank you wish to order.
WHAT IS THE ‘QUICK-LOCK’ FEATURE ON THE CEILING & WALL PLANKS?
The 'Quick-Lock' feature refers to the fact that the planks are end-matched with a Tongue and Groove (T&G) profile that interlocks on ALL 4 edges (2 long sides + 2 short ends) eliminating the need for the butt-joints/seams to be placed on a ceiling joist or wall stud.
The resulting benefit is a Quick & Easy, Tight-Fitting, Low-Waste installation which reduces cutting and labor and can be blind nailed to conceal all fasteners.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CLEAN THE PRE-FINISHED CEILING & WALL PLANKS AFTER THEY’VE BEEN INSTALLED?
The pre-finished Ceiling & Wall Planks can be easily cleaned with a duster or a damp cloth. The use of chemical cleaners and excess water is not recommended.
WHAT IS THE WARRANTY ON CEILING & WALL PLANKS?
Tilton Coffered Ceilings, Inc. (TCC) provides a Limited Five (5) Year Warranty to the original purchaser of its materials and/or any products it has fabricated from those materials at any of its manufacturing facilities.
